The National AgrAbility Project staffed a display at the National FFA Convention in Louisville, Kentucky October 30-November 1. The National FFA Convention attracts approximately 55,000 FFA members from all over the U.S. The display included a John Deere tractor with a Life Essentials lift, an AT tool display, NAP publications, a contact list for all of the SRAP projects, and a grain safety display. Special thanks go out to Kentucky AgrAbility and Texas AgrAbility for helping the NAP staff the booth during this very busy convention.
